The Cartier Oriental Tiara
Dreaming of a sparkly something arriving as a gift on W-day morning? Maybe you’ve already been presented with a famed Little Red Box when your fiancé popped the question? For Cartier fans, or those brides who just want to view some of the world’s most beautiful jewellery (and that’s all of us, right?), Cartier Loves Diamonds is a must-see.
Taking over Selfridges Wonder Room ’til April 29, the pop-up exhibition-cum-luxury-boutique is a journey into Cartier’s illustrious heritage. In three parts, the installation will showcase the brand’s spotlight moments – famous wearers (expect everyone from Grace Kelly to Barbara Hutton) and, of course, the long-standing royal connection which saw Kate Middleton wearing the Queen’s Cartier tiara when she became the Duchess of Cambridge – as well as showing some of their finest contemporary high-end creations. Then there’s the bridal lounge where you’ll be able to try some of their stunning engagement rings on for size as well as find out all about the uniqueness and quality of the brand’s diamonds. Plus, there’s an interactive section where you can try some of Cartier’s most über-luxe creations via a virtual tool (pretending you’re Liz Taylor the whole time, natch).
So grab your entourage and swan down to the Selfridges flagship store at 400 Oxford St to catch Cartier Loves Diamonds before April 29: but be careful, it’s a taste of a life to which you may become accustomed…
